A skateboarder since the age of twelve, Sam discovered snowboarding at university which led to the swift collapse of his degree. Upon graduating he moved to the mountains and has rarely been seen on UK soil since. These days he calls Morzine home and that’s where you can find him, attempting lines when there's powder or hanging out with his dog when there's not. After years of grotty ski-bum work he’s now the Video Editor for Whitelines and Onboard - searching the globe for a chance to film that elusive snowboarding cat.
